  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder

  • 1/2 tsp. red chili powder

  • 1/2 tsp. amchur

  • 2-3 tbsp. grated cheese


  • 01

    In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, oil, chili flakes and yeast. Knead into a dough by adding water little at a time and as required. Cover with a muslin cloth and set aside for an hour.

  • 02

    For the stuffing - Heat oil in a pan and temper with cumin seeds and asafoetida. Saute for a few seconds. Then add the onion, ginger, garlic and green chilies. Fry till light brown.

  • 03

    Now add the veggies, salt, turmeric powder, chili powder and garam masala powder. Cover and cook on a low flame for 2 minutes.

  • 04

    Add the chicken, cheese and amchur powder. Saute for a minute and switch off the flame. Garnish with coriander leaves and set aside to cool down.

  • 05

    For the calzone - Knead the dough once again and then divide into 4-5 portions. Roll out each into a circle by dusting some flour.

  • 06

    Place a little of the stuffing and fold it over like a half moon. Secure the edges with a fork. Make similar calzones with the remaining dough and stuffing.

  • 07

    Line a baking tray with butter paper and brush with some oil / melted butter. Gently place the prepared calzones.

  • 08

    Lightly brush with the egg wash and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees C. for 20-25 minutes or till the top is light golden in colour. Serve with tomato ketchup, mayo or green chutney.
